Read full description of the books Dogs Never Lie About Love: Reflections on the Emotional World of Dogs:
I appreciate that the author set out to explore the emotional, higher consciousness of dogs in defiance of the traditional, rather cold-hearted "mere beast" stance science typically takes, but he waxes overly sentimental about his own pack. His position is that when you live with and really observe them, you recognize a deeper relationship with dogs. Then he dismisses cats the way he accuses typical scientists of dismissing dogs!
I lived with two cats for 12 years. They were communicative, social, affectionate, sensitive to my emotions, and expressive of their own. I have countless stories with which I won't bore you, but I can unequivocally state the cats are not independent and aloof, and neither are their owners.
One particularly offensive comment by the author, that "cat people" are unable to accept the unconditional love of dogs, implies that anyone who does not love dogs is somehow flawed. Personally, I've always wondered if men love dogs so dearly because their dogs will adore them no matter how poorly they treat the human beings around them.
"Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful." - Ann Landers
"The dog is a yes-animal, very popular with people who cannot afford a yes-man." - Robertson Davies
